Default Power supply sleeving question

Hello,

I am looking into possibly sleeving a power supply (Corsair HX1050) and just have a couple of questions:

1) Best place to get individual (1/8th I believe?) sleeving in CANADA
--> I know DazMode sells the Darkside sleeving is this my best bet?

2) Is sleeving just the PSU cables enough length or should I get extensions? If so, where is the best place to buy PSU extensions in CANADA with BLACK connectors?

3) Approximately how many feet of sleeving and heat shrink would I need?


I'm going with the R.O.G color concept like this:




Thanks guys,
Chomie.

You want 1/16". Dazmode is the best you'll get in Canada. You'll need 70-100 feet normally.

That'd be great! Are extension cables necessary? Or are the cables provided with PSU's usually long enough?

Depends on the case you'll be using.

I'll be using the Coolermaster HafX case, Where would be the best place to get extensions in Canada if I ever need them?

I got my extension cables from NCIX. You should avoid extensions and just re sleeve your psu cables if possible. extensions only give you a bunch more cable to manage and it can cause a bit of a headache if all of your cables are extended with extension.
